IAG: Berenbeg maintains 'buy' rating but cuts target price
(CercleFinance.com) - Berenberg on Friday maintained its "buy" rating on the shares of International Consolidated Airlines (IAG), while cutting its target price from 720 pence to 700 pence.
In a note to clients, the German broker said that its analysis suggests that the airline group's recent mid-teens return on invested capital (ROIC) does not reflect a period of "over-earning".
Rather, Berenberg added, IAG can sustain returns above its peers, despite capex of about 15 billion euros to 2022 to be spent on cabin reconfigurations, M&A deals and fleet renewal.
